The Kite Trade Association International held their annual
convention in New Orleans, Lousiana for 2000. The KTAI Annual Convention
is designed to support manufacturers, retailers and distributors of kites
and kite related products. A major component of the January gathering is
a Trade Show featuring the newest products from around the world.
||KTAI January 24 - 29, 2000 New Orleans
As a member of the Crescent City
Kiteflyers I had the wonderful privilege to assist the KTAI at their flying
field demo events. Club members assisted at the demo flys on Thursday
and Saturday. We also managed to get a peek inside the trade show
and get a glimpse of what your favorite kite shop will have in store for
you this year.
There are some great new products
coming from all your favorite kite companies. I made a few pictures
from the events and you can get an idea from them why this was one of the
coolest events I've ever attended.
Thank you Jay for letting the Crescent
City KiteFlyers be a part of the trade show. Thank you to all the
vendors who took time to talk with us, show us your new products, LET US
FLY your new products and give us some flying TIPS and LESSONS.
